Hurt

I told you what I feel
But I guess it’s not a big deal
You didn’t care
After that all my troubles where hard to bare

I told you I liked you,
And that id be true
You had this shocked look on you face
As if you didn’t know what to do

You lied to me
Said you wernt ready
Aren’t you all about honesty?

The next day no less you asked uber out
I knew i should have had my doubts

I got screwed over again
All you had to do was say no,
I would have waited for you to show

Show up and say you’re ready…

But obviously
I wasn’t good enough for you,
Not skinny or pretty enough for you
So now I don’t know what to do

I care about you to much too just let go
And all of this I wanted you to know,
I hope one of these days you will show
